If I were checking out TBB right now, I’d probably think something along the lines of: ‘oh no, not another mecha!’ However, my excuse for blogging this model by daikoncat is that this is not just any old mecha; it’s the Skull Leader from the Macross saga. I used to watch the series as a Continue reading →
LEGO Anime models on The Brothers Brick
Anime (アニメ in Japanese) is the style of animation or cartoons popularized in Japan, but appreciated worldwide today. Anime inspires lots of LEGO models from builders everywhere. Whether you love the artistry of Hayao Miyazaki or mecha from shows like Gundam and Evangelion, you’ll find many wonderful LEGO creations inspired by anime here on The Brothers Brick.
Carter Baldwin ([Carter]) once again proves his prowess with mecha chock full of wonderful detailing. As ever I am endlessly impressed by what builders can do with olive green considering it is such a new colour. Carter also made perfect use of the Citizen Brick diamond plate custom printed tiles. If you want to see Continue reading →
Tim had previously featured Moko’s High School girl sculpture, but I had to post an update after running across the latest variant. I amazed by the amount of textural detail achieved with the clothing by using relatively simple bricks alone. Check out more on Moko’s blog
Well a 400k piece castle and a drawing robot are tough acts to follow, but this was simply too nice not to share. Not only is Dane E’s (Mechanekton) Fuchikoma a really great example of the iconic A.I. machine, but the setting that he placed it in is absolutley stunning. By utilizing a clean sterile Continue reading →
Schfio made them and they are too adorable for words. Tama and Friends is Japanese Anime series that originally ran in 1994.
I’m not one-hundred percent certain what this is, but given the builder’s (62778grenouille) history of creating other gorgeous models from Miyazaki’s films, I’m guessing this is the giant horsefly, or ushiabu, from Miyazaki’s 1984 masterpiece, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. In any case, it’s a fantastic and slightly terrifying creature, with some really Continue reading →
I watched My Neighbour Totoro for the first time just after Christmas. I wish I had seen it years ago, because it was absolutely wonderful. So seeing legorobo:waka’s model of the iconic Catbus was right up my alley! I love the somewhat simplified/blocky style…and that smile is just spot on! But the coolest feature is Continue reading →
Flickr user Legorobo has built a gorgeous microscale rendition of the mighty fortress at the heart of the White Comet Empire in the classic anime Space Battleship Yamato. Legorobo has taken it an extra step, though, and added both lights and motors to complete the fantastic effect.
Flickr user OliveSeon has built some of the most impressive large town dioramas I’ve seen. There are lots of people building cityscapes using official sets mixed in with their own creations and landscaping, but rarely are the official sets so well integrated. Additionally, he’s packed them both chock full of terrific details of his own, Continue reading →
When it comes to catching someone’s eye with a LEGO model, the initial WOW-factor of the presentation obvioulsy has a lot to do with it. With Victor Vercesi’s (Bricksbeard) M299 Utility Vehicle, the first impression is most certainly WOW! The bright colours and contrasting background makes this model jump right out at you. Based on Continue reading →
Jack McKeen (madLEGOman) has built quite a spectacular mecha for the FBTB Mecha Madness Contest. This gargantuan machine of Victor Freeze’s would come in very handy while battling Batman…I also think it would work well for freezing mammoths! And what icy mecha would be complete without the ability to hurl pissed off polar bears?? There Continue reading →
I sadly have not had the time to neither participate in Ma.Ktoberfest as I had hoped, nor to blog the awesome creations from everyone else. So over the final week of the festivities I will try and make more of an effort to at least rectify the latter by featuring some of my favourites. First Continue reading →
I was looking through flickr user’s Sydag’s new aircraft models earlier, and was shocked to discover that we’ve never featured any of his stunning airplanes here before. Sydag has been building some of the best small aircraft to be found, including this latest pair of Hawker Sea Furies, decked out for the Reno Air Races. Continue reading →
Dane E (Mechanekton) has just posted two, large, distinctive, and absolutely rockin’ mechas. Both are a very unique style and shape, and totally full of awesome details. WOW! Ostrogoth Svarog
I am familiar with the mecha designs from Armored Trooper VOTOMS despite having never seen the anime. It is on my “to watch” list…but in the meantime I will just swoon over this brilliant LEGO model of the Scopedog by Brickshelf user tattun. You simply have to check out the full photo gallery!!! There is Continue reading →
